Tomorrow (Oct. 15) is Global Handwashing Day 2013.
One of the lessons shared during GHD is that teachers have the power to reduce absenteeism in their classrooms through promoting hand washing with soap. So we started our celebration a day early by delivering 500 soap packets to Nap Ford Community School, which is just down the street from Clean the World headquarters in Orlando.
Nap Ford Community School is a K-5 charter school with a particular focus on health and. The school serves 125 students, more than 93 percent of whom qualify for free or reduced lunch. Tomorrow we will deliver 500 packets of soap to Rock Lake Elementary.
